Altamont Gardens


Large, beautiful old-world garden, Robinsonian in style with a strong emphasis on the informal tradition of combining a good plant collection within the natural landscape of its enviroment. Lawns and clipped yews slope down to a lake surrounded by rare trees, shrubs and a profusion of roses both old and modern with herbaceous plants scent the air. There is a steep descent through the “Ice Age Glen” to a beautiful river walk.
